My shop contains primary school resources. Most resources are made for a Kindergarten/Year 1 level because these are resources I am currently creating and using in my own Kindergarten classroom. I encourage buyers to purchase my resources and make small modifications so they are perfectly suited to their school and classroom context.

Levelled Counting and Numeral Identification Homework Cards

(0)
This resource is a sequential series of 8 levelled homework cards that address Aspect 1 of the NSW Numeracy Continuum. It contains; -one card for numerals 1-5, -four cards for 1-10, differing on the student’s ability with before and after numbers, -one card for numbers 1-20, -one card for numbers 1-30 and -one card for numbers 1-100. Using Best Start data, assess the student’s starting point and give them the appropriate card to move them along Aspect One of the Numeracy Continuum. Each card gives parents comprehensive instructions and activities to help their child practise the skills necessary to address the cluster markers for the level. Activities and instructions address counting forward and backwards, counting objects, numeral identification and subitising. It encourages students to see different representations of numbers such as the number line, 5/10 frame and concrete objects. Print out the card back to back. Learning intentions and content are on the front, parent instructions and activity suggestions are on the back. Provide parents with a resource pack containing a die, counters, number cards, number line, 5 or 10 frame and number chart. BLM are provided to make most aspects of this resource pack. Once a child masters the content, provide them with the next levelled card. This homework could be compulsory or optional for parents who are interested in supporting their child’s learning. The activities could also be incorporated into numeracy groups.
